Huh.  In spite of what the QtMobility site says about the desktop platforms 
being fully supported, it appears they are not.  Looking at the 1.10 beta2 
code release, there are no backends for Linux/Mac/Win, only for S60 and Maemo.  
The Meego backend using Geoclue and Gypsy is under development at the moment, 
which I assume will work on the desktops.  I guess we'll have to wait for a 
couple more beta's before we know exactly what's happening.
